My heart hurts for this entire family at this time of sorrow. Mary Lou was my sixth grade teacher and by watching her kind and caring demeanor she made a great impact on my life.A memory of her follows( we had a young boy with a learning disability, Even in sixth grade he could not read. As she gave the rest of her class an assignment to do on their own . She spent countless time helping him learn to read. So as I observed I definitely learned much more than Reading Writing and Arithmetic. God is Love. Bless all the family.

A beautiful example and teacher.
